There are many different clocks installed in vehicles depending upon the options listed. Check your owners manual for directions. One common error people make is trying to set the clock when it is on. It should be off when you use the set feature.
I'm not totally sure what you mean by "reset the time" because the unit normally sets the time automatically from the WWVB radio time signal. If you want to do it manually, this is what the Instruction Manual (PDF format) says:
MANUAL TIME SETTING
In case the atomic clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock.
The hour digits will start flashing in the upper LCD.
Select the desired hours by pressing and releasing the + key.
Press and release the SET key to advance to the minutes setting.
Now the minute digits will start flashing.
Select the desired minutes by pressing and releasing the + key. If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
Press and release the SET key to confirm the Time setting and continue to the Year setting.
To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement. When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
-Press SELECT once and time number should flash. -Press and hold SELECT and it will enter settings mode for the clock. -At the bottom of the screen next to the moon phase you should now see PST time zone. -UP and DOWN keys will change the time zone. -Press SELECT and other clock settings can be changed.
-Make sure clock is in radio sync mode. This is in the manual so won't repeat here. -Press & release SELECT. Clock time numbers should flash -Press & hold SELECT. It should enter clock settings mode -Bottom of screen next to moon phase you should see the current time zone. PST after reset -UP & DOWN will move through time zones. -Press & release SELECT when done. -Each time SELECT is pressed will move to a new setting like 12/24 hour etc. -Press SELECT until clock numbers stop blinking or leave it alone to return to normal mode -This should also work on the other Oregon Scientific Starck models.
The radio may not be able to get a strong enough or clear enough signal to process (night is best away from TV, computers and radios). To regain "control" of the clock, take the battery out, wait 30 seconds and then reinstall it. This will reset the clock. You can then manually set the clock.
Press SET for a few seconds until the hour starts flashing in the display. Then press the ADJUST button to set the hour. Press SET to move to the different functions (Hour -> Minutes -> Seconds-> Month -> Date -> Year) each time using the ADJUST button to correct the setting. Finally press MODE to exit the setting mode.
If the time zone is incorrect for your area (default is PST), press MODE to enter the Alarm Time Mode; then press SET to flip through the time zones; then press MODE again to exit.
The little "reset" is for use if the LCD display doesn't come on when the battery is changed. It doesn't affect any of the clock settings per se.
Make sure the clock is in standby mode, as opposed to playback mode. Press time set button — the clock digits will blink. If they don't, you're in playback mode. Press the hour button to adjust the hour. Press the minute button to adjust the minute. Press time set button to confirm the time.
